Honoring Our Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day

Remembering the Fallen

Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer and a well need long weekend filled with outdoor activities and family gatherings. We are traveling the highways and airways to destinations of relaxation and entertainment.

While we are enjoying a weekend of much need rest and recreation, let us not forget why we celebrate Memorial Day. Many confuse the military related holidays (Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day) and their true meaning.

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May, honoring men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

In 2000, Congress establish the The National Moment of Remembrance, and asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute. The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather, it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died in service to the United States.

On this Memorial Day, ADG Lighting is proud to honor and remember this brave men and women of the Armed Forces who honorably served and sacrificed their lives to this great nation. No matter how we choose to spend this holiday weekend, we hope that each of you will taken a few moments and pay your respects to our fallen heroes. Our thoughts and prayers will be with them on Monday at 3 pm for a moment of silence in their honor.

ADG Lighting Collaborates With Ardeo Design On Yacht Project

Creative Inspiration Hits The High Seas

We love creative collaboration. It sparks a fire that brings a vision into reality. We recently had the distinct opportunity to collaborate with Scott Cole of Ardeo Design to bring a challenging project to life. Our efforts were focused on the interior design of a 96′ New Nordhavn Super Yacht, the Lacey Kay. Ardeo Design was commissioned to revamp the interior of the vessel to reflect the owners specific vision and taste for the living spaces of the Lacey Kay. 

Sailing the High Seas With ADG

The owner had a vision of walnut wood, leather and fabric on the interiors with accents of polished stainless steel. Our creative offerings included a chrome shade wall sconce and a round drum chandelier. Both offerings complimented Ardeo Design’s overall project and brought the owner’s vision to life. The partnership between Ardeo Design and ADG Lighting was the perfect opportunity for ADG Lighting to feature their creative collaboration approach to design. The vessel was delivered to the owner in early 2016.
